Scent can help transform your feelings and empower you to feel the way you want to. Think about it…when you bake a batch of cookies, the heavenly smell coming from your kitchen is the first thing you notice. It makes your mouth water and makes you anticipate the delicious treat that’s coming your way! The powerful connection between scent and emotions is exactly why my friends at Glade® offer a range of 37 different scents. Each scent evokes different feelings and empowers you to feel the way you want to. Selecting a scent is a personal signature that reflects how you feel at a given moment…or how you want guests to feel when they enter your home. Bottom line: scent sets the mood! Glade® recently sent me a selection of their seasonal wax melts and an electric burner. The task was for me to heat the wax melts and let the scent empower me to create a complimentary recipe to complete the mood!
I quickly decided their Blooming Peony & Cherry™ was speaking to me! This scent features bright, zesty notes of cherry and red fruit…along with delicate floral notes of pink rose and peony. Relaxing scents of white woods and creamy musk balance the equation and set the mood for relaxation and romance. For me, the fun and flirty scent evoked thoughts of a simple dessert featuring cherry and chocolate. The end result was my fun Black Forest Puff Pastry Turnovers. Imagine flaky pastry surrounding sweetly tart cherries, semisweet chocolate, and a super creamy cocoa cream cheese filling – swoon! Because I used convenient squares frozen puff pastry, these decadent turnovers are a snap to make. So let’s warm some Blooming Peony & Cherry™ wax melts and get baking! Before you know it, your house is going to be smelling heavenly.
